Brides have been branching out and seeking new ideas for their personal bouquets. Scheme Events loves a daring bride who trades in fresh floral for something much different and makes a statement with a bouquet. When thinking about a bouquet, keep in mind not all locales can handle every bloom at every time of year. Luckily, there are plenty of gorgeous fresh floral bouquet alternatives if you’d prefer other options.  As a bonus, many of these are environmentally friendly if you are have a eco-conscious wedding. You can still use a florist to create many of these looks.

Pinecones are showstoppers for a winter wedding.  They give a rustic feel with the beautiful brown tones and still incorporate nature as often found in brides bouquets.

Gather your grandmothers brooches together for a unique heirloom piece.  Something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue can all be incorporated right at your fingertips!
